Of the 800 high-paying jobs that apparel holding company VF Corporation plans to relocate to Denver from around the country starting this summer, about half may require new hires.

“We do expect to have a lot of people move, but not everyone,” Anita Graham, the company’s chief human resources officer, said Wednesday while in Denver for the Outdoor Retailer and Snow Show.

The company is doing its best to get as many of its current employees to relocate as it can, Graham said.
